Make-At-Home Cosmetics: Introduction

There really is something wonderful about super-fresh, instant,  just-out-of-the-kitchen cosmetic products. Their lavishness belies their simplicity and effectiveness. To then slather something onto the skin that’s made in a way that’s tailored entirely to one’s own needs is the ultimate in made-to-measure luxury. That it works just as well as something you might buy in the shops is further reward. And then there’s the way it makes you look. 

Make-at-home cosmetics are ideal treats for when the shops are closed. You don’t need to even leave the house for an instant pick-me-up, because every recipe you’ll find in this book are things you’re likely to find in your kitchen already (and if you can’t, you can pick them up in even the most modestly-stocked corner shop). That means you’ve got a supply of cosmetics on demand, ready to go when you are. What’s more, make-at-home skincare can be as natural and organic as you’d like - you control the process and what goes in.

The recipes in this series are created for their simplicity and effectiveness, avoiding ingredients that are difficult to find—so what you’ll find here are easy-to-make products that you can mix up in a minute or two without any specialist equipment.

The cosmetics are all beautifully fresh and so they’re best used as soon as they’re made. They should not be stored for later use unless stated otherwise within the recipe, because like all fresh products, they are liable to go off. 

Over the coming two weeks we'll upload a new recipe daily at 18:00 GMT. Remember to bookmark our page so you can check back.
